Maple Latte Recipe

 Ingredients:

  • 1 serving of coffee
  • 1-2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup (Grade A light or medium)
  • Milk

Directions:

Pour the cup of freshly brewed espresso into a mug, stirring in the maple syrup. Then, lightly spoon in steamed milk.

Sweet Tip: If you have a regular coffee maker at home without a milk steamer, we recommend lightly scalding ¼ of milk in a small pot. When ready, remove the pot from the stove and lightly froth the milk with a milk frother.
